It is tough to tell what the San Diego Chargers are doing with their franchise at this point therefore making it hard to predict how they will do in 2012.
The team is not looking too good. Phillip Rivers had an off year, injuries plagued the team and many expected that Head Coach Norv Turner would be fired.
Then moving into free agency they lost running back Mike Tolbert to the Carolina Panthers and No. 1 receiver Vincent Jackson to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
To replace Jackson, the Chargers added former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Robert Meachem.
The 27-year-old was inked to a four-year deal worth just under $26 million, including $14 million in guaranteed money.
Similar to Jackson, Meachem’s yards per catch average is higher than most at over 16 yards per catch for his career.
Despite only starting in 25 games over his career, Meachem has caught 141 passes for 2,269 to go along with 23 touchdowns.
Meachem spent five seasons in a New Orleans offense that is loaded wit...

The Chargers added several offensive weapons this offseason: Robert Meachem, Eddie Royal, Le'Ron McClain and Dante Rosario. But the player with a shot to lift the offense to a championship level has already been on the roster for almost a decade. That would be Antonio Gates, who will drive the passing attack more than ever before.
Peyton Manning's arrival in the AFC West apparently has put the Denver Broncos' rivals on notice, as the need to acquire quality defensive help is now at a premium. In line with that thinking, the San Diego Chargers have re-signed defensive end Luis Castillo to a one-year contract.
Castillo has been a valuable contributor to the Chargers front seven over the years, helping...

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings added more competition at the wide receiver position Monday, agreeing to terms with former San Diego Chargers receiver Bryan Walters.

The Chargers feel a draft, but is that a good thing? The team with one playoff win in four years is now looking to next month's dispersal of college talent to help snap a two-season skid of missing the postseason. The question is: do Chargers' fans still have faith in general manager A. J. Smith to work his draft-day magic?
